I've been inflating my tires to 40 PSI, and decided to try and ride with 60 both in the front and back for the first time last week. Everything was fine when I left it. However, now the bike looks like this.

The back tube had a hole in it (the Bell inner tube from Walmart), but the front help up fine it seemed. There is nothing sharp inside the rim, and nothing in the tire since it has been cleaned thoroughly and checked. My tires say they can be inflated up to 80 PSI, but I do not know whether these inner tubes can handle this pressure? Anyway, off to Walmart to buy a new inner tube, and continue to inflate both the tires to ~40 PSI again...
